The Xcerts plans for their next single

the-xcerts-2THE XCERTS’ story began around the turn of the century when then 13-year-olds Murray MacLeod (vocals, guitar) and Jordan Smith (bass, vocals) met in the headmaster’s office of their school in Aberdeen. In 2006 they relocated to Brighton and met drummer and Exeter exile Tom Heron, where the line-up of THE XCERTS was finalised.  After a barrage of dates with Future of the left, Bat for Lashes, Biffy Clyro, Make Model, Cage the Elephant, Brakes, Get Cape.Wear Cape. Fly and Fighting with Wire and recent supports with Enter Shikari and Feeder, THE XCERTS are gearing up for recording their debut full length album late summer with producer Dave Eringa (Manic Street Preachers / Idlewild) .  They’re a double edged sword of ferocious guitar and dainty, poetic words – a distorted pop band who fuse the influences of fellow countrymen Idlewild and Biffy Clyro with the thoughtful approach to songwriting of old school ‘emo’ bands like Jimmy Eat World and Bright Eyes. With support from Radio 1, XFM, MTV2, Rock Sound and !Kerrang, and a work ethic of epic proportions with a live show to match, these are exciting times for the Aberdeen / Exeter and Brighton based trio.  “Nothing short of astonishing” – !Kerrang  “Ludicrously Punchy” – Steve Lamacq  “’The Xcerts are going to be making big strides in 2008” – Drowned in Sound  Following the release of their critically acclaimed debut album ‘In The Cold Wind We Smile’ The Xcerts can now reveal plans for their next single. ‘Just Go Home’ will be released on 8th June through Xtra Mile Recordings as a download on iTunes and all major DSPs.  Fans who purchase ‘Just Go Home’ in the week of release are eligible for an additional free live track recorded at the band’s recent sold out Glasgow show and mixed by Dave Eringa (Idlewild, Manic Street Preachers,) who also produced the band’s debut album.

The Seal Cub Clubbing Club new album

the-seal-cub-clubbing-clubHow many bands can you think of that run their own book club? Most fans go to a show expecting to hear music. Aside from the library of books The Seal Cub Clubbing Club bring along for fans to take away or contribute to – and their super tongue twister of a name, The SCCC also deliver music – amazing music, as you will hear on their debut album ‘Super Science Fiction’ – out 20 April 2009.

Recorded under the guiding hand of producer Barney (Arctic Monkeys, Kasabian, and the Enemy) and following on from two limited edition self titled EP’s recorded by Paul Tipler (Stereolab, iForward, Russia!, 80’s Matchbox B-Line Disaster), ‘Super Science Fiction’ is a smartly diverse collection of songs ‘that veers dangerously close to being unlistenable without actually becoming so.’, the band tell us.

In the shortest time since they first came together on the Wirral Peninsual, this enigmatic Liverpool 5 piece have been on tour with The Fall, British Sea Power, Field Music, Black Wire, Brakes (twice) and Idiot Pilot, enjoyed support from the likes of Steve Lamacq, who brought them in for interview on his BBC 6 Music radio show and played Glastonbury 2008.

Not to mention the tons of books they have digested along the way,

With warm up gigs, more tours, a further single culminating in the release of the album over the coming months, the majority of The SCCC story is yet to be written – and it promises to be a corker, reaching the very top of the international best sellers list,

Warm up shows:

07th FEB – W EST KIRBY Westbourne Hall – Charity Do!
12th FEB – LIVERPOOL Monochrome
14th FEB – LIVERPOOL 02 Carling Academy w/ British Sea Power
17th FEB – LONDON ’Helium’ @ 93 Feet East w/ Dogtanion
25th FEB – BRISTOL ’Start The Bus’ (Baldwin Street)
27th FEB – MANCHESTER Moho’s
24th MAR – LONDON Bloody Awful Poetry @ 93 Feet East
